‘The Innovation Game’


The workshop steers participants through a process of team-based ideation and mock execution, playfully simulating how start-up ideas are developed. The method of “realization” is formed and loosely guided by the Design Thinking methodology, following the stages of Understanding, Design, and Delivery.
